Jason Robert Brown will be providing incidental music for a new production of Kaufman and Hart’s classic comedy “You Can’t Take It With You,” starting previews in August.

Rose Byrne, making her Broadway debut, and Annaleigh Ashford have signed on to a cast that already includes James Earl Jones and Kristine Neilsen. Mark Linn-Baker, Crystal A. Dickinson, Julie Halston and Reg Rogers also are among the ensemble.  Scott Ellis directs the revival.

“You Can’t Take It With You” kicks off previews Aug. 26 ahead of a Sept. 28 opening at the Longacre Theater. Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel and Jam Theatricals lead the producing team.
